BEAUFORT. VERY PEMAKKABLE.—An.O'jj the number of old in. habitants in Bemitiirt, were living an old man and hi,, wife "ameli William and Mary Jenkins, commonly called "Will a' Mary Shi'.kin." They had been living toge- ther in the bands of wedlock for the long period of 62 years. On Thursday week, the old man died at nine I p.m., and in twelvti hours after the old woman died. On Monday a large concourse of people attended their funerals and they were consigned 'o 'heir resting place in the Bethesda^oemetery. Their^ ayes were—man 88, wife. 86 THE REDUCTION OF WAGES. This subject, which Las caused considerable commoiion in the minds of the working population for the ¡'i,t month, is now wearing a brighter aspect. LTlJe notice, we nrider.-tand, has been withdrawn at several of the woiks, and particu- larly against the miners and colliers.
CAERPHILLY. THE VAN COLLIERY COMPANY, LIMITED. In our advertising columns of to-day is a prospectus under the above heading. It will be remembered that this colliery, last year, bad an unenviable notoriety at Guildford, when in possession of the "Glamorgan Iron and Goal Company," a large sum of money having been spent upon developing the 11 company arid very little upon the colliery, and tunds failed at the very time when the level was cleared up into the more valuable measures. The little rock and big rock coals were the only two worked to market by the Glamorgan lion and Coal Company. The level, however, being now cleared up, the Van Colliery Company can commence withia a fort-L night of their starting to bring out ooals from the yard vein, the red vein, the big vein, and the black vein, in addition to the two rock coals, ironstone can also be got out upon the works recommencing full and active operations. Much doubt seems to have been felt as to the quantity and quality of the veins in this level, and the coals obtained from them. It i a good feature in the Van Colliery Company that they can give the names of such men as Blackwtll, Bond, Wilkinson (of Powell Duffryn), and many other engineers, as reporting very favourably, Mr. Wilkinson has cut the big vein in the company's taking over 12 feet thick, and the black vein over 9 feet. The quality of the ooala is such as few can bear comparison with the quantity is best guaran- teed by the assured fact that in the two rock coals, the further they are entered into in maiden coal, the thicker and harder does the coal prove, and that in the other measures and veins, the surface indications prove the coal thicker as it is opened into. Anyone sceptical upon this matter can best a-sure themselves by a visit. We have much faith in the undertaking proving a fortunate one to the adventurers, a boon to the distriot, and an inducement to the further development of the large basin wherein it is situated.
13 ndru. I THE SEE-SAW. Sickness and health have been having a game with me, Tossing me, just like a ball, to and fro Pleasure and pain have been doing the same with me, Treating me simply like something to throw. Joy took me up to the clouds for a holiday, In a balloon that she happens to keep; Then, as a damp upon rather a jolly day, Grief in her diving-bell took me down deep. Poverty came pretty early—bad-luck to her!- Truly she makes an affectionate wife. I like a fool, have been faithful, and stuck to her; She'll stick to me for the rest of my life. As for our children (I wish we had drowned them all) Those I regard as the worst of my ills How can you wonder to hear me confound them all, Seeing that moat of those children are Bill., ? Hope, who WM once an occasional visitor, Never looks in on us now for a chat. Memory comes, though-the cruel inquisitor! (Not that I feel much the better for that!) Hope was a liar; there's no use denying it; Memory's tales are decidedly true Yet I confess that I like, after trying it, Hope's conversation the best of the two.
Jittraíurt. ¡ DEBRETT'S PEERAGE." AND BARONETAGE, KHIGHTAGK AND HOUSE OF COMMOMS," for 1867. London: Dean and Son, Ludgate-liill. THE publication of these annual works has extended over more than a century. They have long enjoyed the reputation of being peculiarly complete and accu- rate in the information they contain of the Upper Ten Thousand," so that little is necessary to commend the snrrent issue. The important improvements which were introduced into last year's edition are embodied in this year's; and there is also a new feature, which we believe is not given in any other Peerage, viz., the ad- dresses of the soas and danghters of peers, with their courtesy titles, appointments, marriages, and residences. The two volumes contain upwards of six hundred care- fully engraved arms and crests; a biography of every peer, bishop, baronet, knight, and member of parlia- ment, with detailed information as to their family seats, •club", titles, &c; the orders of knighthood, convocation, and innumerable other matters of interest relating to "high life." The information appears to be corrected nearly to the present time-all the recent creations, appointments, and ecclesiastical changes being given. Each volume contains upwards of (jOO pages of closely- printed matter. The Standard, in noticing this year's Oebrett, says:—" We believe it was Thackeray who described Debrett as the Englishman's Bible, and some- body else said that Englishmen were more anxious to have their names printed on the red book of the peerage than to have them written on the Book of Life. Of coarse these are gross as well as profane satires, but it is not to be denied that Englishmen are deeply attached to the aristocracy and to things aristocratic. Why ? L 'rds are liked because they are lords but this would not be the case if lords were not, as a rale, worthy of esteem for their intrinsic merits. Look at Debrett, and it will be seen that the English peerage is not only a thing of ancient, but also of continuous and of present growth. The vigour of its youth is being perpetually renewed. To get into the charmed circle is the general object of ambition, and therefore the peerage is continually invi- gorated by the best blood of the nation. No man oan understand the political constitution of England who finds Debrett not more interesting and instructive than a haul ton directory." THE ART-JOURNAL for March gives line engravings from Leslie's Autolycus," Solomon's Art Critics in Brittany," and Bonington's Fish Market," and a conti- nuation of the papers on Tue Knights of the Middle Ages," Sculptors' Quarrel," Modern Painters in Belgium," and Historic Devices and Badges." It con. tains the announcement that the first part of the Illus- trated Catalogue of the Paris Exhibition, to be published in the Art-Journal, will appear in the April number. It will consist of tweuty-six of the leading manufacturers of Europe; among them may be named Froment Meu- rice, Hunt and Roskell, Sy and Wagner (Berlin), Elking- ton, Harry Emanuel, Wcise, Benson, Rudoiphi, O.liot, Christofla (jewellers and goldsmiths, of Paris or Lon- don), Copeland, Minton, the Imperial and Royal Manu- factories of DitsJen and Berlin (porcelain), Durenne (cast-iron), Brecheaux (fans), Servant, Charpentier (bronzes). Jackson and Graham, Gillows, Trollope (fur- niture), IX>bson (glass). The number of engravings will exceed one hundred. The following is from Chambers's Journal MODERN SAVAGES AND CIVILISATION. As for the religious views of Savages, the Tahitians be. lieve in the immortality of the soul, indeed, but imagine (with some of their betters) that heaven is reserved for chiefs, and some inferior locality for the common people. The Maoris, who are perpetually at war in this world, hope to find matters equally bellicose in the next; heaven being pic. tured by them as a place where they will be always victo- rious and have continual feasts of fish and sweet potatoes. They'believe in a wicked spirit (though not in a good one), called Atoua, who is a cannibal like themselves, and when any one is ill, they suppose Atoua is devouring his inside. It has been asserted," says Sir John Lubbock, "over and over again, that there is no race of men so degraded as to be entirely without a religion—without some idea of a Deity. So far from this being true, the very reverse is the case." The tribes in the lake districts of Central Africa "admit neither god, nor angel, nor devil." The Tasmanians have no word for a Creator. Many races have no idea of a good deity, but some vague fear of an evil being. It must be reo membered that most travellers start with an impression that the folks they meet with, however strange, must have some spiritual notions, and are only convinced against their will therefore their testimony upon this point is the more conclu- sive. Kolben, for instance, felt quite sure that certain dances in KaffirUnd were of a religious character, let the Hotten- tots say what they will." Dr. Hooker allows that Khasias (of India) have no religion whatever; and Colonel Yule, who maintains they have, admits that breaking hen's eggs is the principal part of their religious practice." Upon the whole, it is impossible to come to any other con- viction than that with which Sir John Lubbock concludes his most interesttog e.say No doubt, different races of savages differ vscy much in character; but after mak- ing every possible allowance for them, it must, I think, be admitted that they are inferior, morally as well as in other respects, to the more civilised races. There is, indeed, no atrocious crime, no vice recorded by any traveller, which might not be paralleled in Europe; but that which with us is the exception is with them the rule; that which with us is condemned by the general verdict ofhociety, and is confined totheuniduoatedaud the vicious, is among savages passed over almost without condemnation, and often treated as a matter of course." As civilisation expands, it is certain that the world improves, and for the benefit of those who per- versely tticke far leaving matters as they are, here is the proof. It is admitted that if any aritnal increases in num. bers it muit be because the conditions are becoming more favourable for it; in other words, because it is happipr and more comfortable. Let us apply this test to Man." In the United State*, in 1825 (excluding parts of Michigan and Illinoi ), there were 97,0<K) Indians, occupying 77,000 000 tcrtu—120,312 square miles. This gives one inhabitant to every one atid a quarter square miles and yet in this case, since the Government gave them a subsidy, the population was ev^n gre3ter than it would have been had they lived solely on the produce of the chase. In the Hudson's Bay Terr uory, ti,ere are ten square miles to each individu I. In Patagonia there are itixiy-eight square mill's to each. Popula- tion, indeed, irvari-.bli increases with civilisation. The un- riv Used parts of Mexico coutain 371,000 inhabitants in 675,00-3 Square wises; while Mexico Proper, with 833,600 <q" .te miles, tind 6,691,000 inhabitants! Lombardy hiS (or bad) ?0 inhabitants to each square mile England, 2">0 an4 lWg-um as many as ;,20..

MoiiOEits r«5S^0S.— A h>in ible murder and suicide occuttjd on Wednesday, io Drrmondbey. A house- holder, n&iu&d Gilford was summoned as a) juror on an inq test about to be held, and on his rturn, after dis- chuiKing that du'.j, found that his wife hud murdered her only son, a boy four yefirs of ase, and then cut her own throat. Both had been dead for upwurds of all hour.—A poor boy, bearing the princely name of Conde, was the subject of an inquest at Bromley, on Wednes- day, having b,B'l starved to death by his inbaraan pa- rents. Although 1*2 years of age, the body only weighed 211bs.; and in addition to hi-, being deprived of food, evidence wan given of his being frequently beat and ill-used. The jury returned a verdict of wilful mur- der. On removing the prisonerM. the mob made an attempt to lynch them, aud the woman was very roughly baudit.d.
TREORKY. ACCIDENT.—On Saturday last, whilst James Dawkins, the policeman at the Abergorki siding, was engaged in detaching a rope from four trucks of coal which were joined to the engine at that siding, bin feet became en- tangled, and before he could extricate himself, the wheels of the ntst carriage passed over one of his legs jnst above the ankle, crushing it in a dreadrul manner. His presence of mind led him to lift his leg from the rails after the passing of the first truck, other" ise the three others would have parsed over it in succession. His leg has been taken off just below the knee, bnt little hope is entertained of his recovery. He is a ysuog married man, about 30 years of a^e, with a family.
WKNVOI- Oh! 'iig a foul thir g when a cur cannot keep hims> If in all companies! I would have, as one should say, one that t*kes upon him to be a dog indeed, to be, as it were, a dog in all things, SHAKSPEARE. DOG HUNT.—On Monday John Davi^.of Tywitb, and Mr. hicnaros, ot the Rhus, having inisse Mime lambs from their fields, were w uching to <-a'< ti the marauders, when they observed a large don (•» ni mgiel), belonging to John Thomas, of the Down*, willi a smaller dog in company, run among the sheep and carry off a lamb before thpy could prevent th» m. Thr-v went in ebase, and met the dogs returning for a second edition. John Davies shot the large dog, which inmt-l on him when it foiind itself wounded, and he finished it by striking it on the head with the butt end of tht- nun, smashing the stock as Wt-ll as the dog's skull. The other dog was shot by Richards, near the Colv rh use Cro^s. The owner of the large dog, we undr-isiaud, was looking for the coroner yesterday to hav- an inquest held.
ABEKAVON THE ATTEMPTED MOKDEB OF Du. PUITCH&.RD.—On Tuesday, Captain Jones wa., brought btrture the Neath bench of mnnistr&tes, charged with having on Monday last shot at Dr. Pritchard with i< t-nt to murder him. The complainant is a surgeon pra.'ti>ing at Aberavon, and whilst returning home on Friday from the Marguin Tin Works, of which he is part owner, the prisoner gave him a letter, telling him it was to demand money, and that he would wait till three o'clock for the prosecutor to consider it. The prosecutor told him he owed him to consider it. The prosecutor told him he owed him no money, but if he appealed to him by way of chariiy, he would give him some. On Svturday the complain- ant again saw the prisoner, apparently lying in wait, and avoided him. On the day in question the prosecutor was riding along a narrow lane when he sxw the prisoner approaching hi'n. The prosecutor askei him what he wanted? when he replied," I waut my money or your life," at the same time produciny a pistol. The prose- cutor tried to avoid him, but noon Ult that he was wounded through the hat on t!m right side of the temple, but not dangerously. The prisoner said when taken into custody, that he wanted to see the prosecutor on his way home, and that he tired because Dr. Pritchard tried to ride him down. The magistrates committed the prisoner on the charge of shooting with intent to murder. ————
MARITIME INTELLIGENCE. Rates of freight have not materially altered since our last, but the enquiry for ready tonnage is becoming brisk, which is no doubt attributable in part to the easterly wind which prevont8 ships from arriving. Coal freights to India and China are well maintained, and in some cases sinoe our last report rates have advanced. Homeward chartering from India is less active, the demand for Calcutta having nearly ceased; but for the following freights enquiries for tonnage are still being made Moul- mien, 70s. Teak (under 7u0 tons), Manilla to United Kingdom or Continent, 45s.; London to Bombay and back, 80s., on the round for a small vessel London to Rangoon and Moulmien, and back to United Kingdom or Continent, £ 5 10s. on teak, or £ 4 15s. rice. The rate for salt trom Liverpool to Calcutta is now quoted 40s. to 41s., with full consignments. By the alteration in the French navigation laws, the ports of France are now cheaper, and orders thence are being rapidly filled up. The Mediterranean trade is still very dull. American and Baltic timber freights continue to be severely influenced, and have opened out at even lower rates than last spring. During the past week business has become more dull than ever. Owing to the easterly wind no vessels can come up, and the dockd are in consequence exceedingly thin of ton- nage. On the 1st of April next, it is said, the Bute Trustees, under the management of Mr. Simpson, of the Dock Office, will commence working their tips at the EaBt But-o Dock, and no longer employ contractors. It in also understood that six new tips are to be speedily erected at the dock, and some hydraulic onots in the basin.

GENERAL NEWS. The Star says the Reform Bill will be introduced on Monday week the 11th of March, just one day earlier in the year than Mr. Gladstone's Bill last session. The Post says it is rumoured that Mr. Beresford Hope, M.P. for Stoke-on-Trent, is about to be raisod to the peerage, under the title of Lord Bedgebury, the name of his e-t"te in Kent. The intention of making the Clarendon Club political has been abandoned. The Times says there is yet time for the progressive section of the Cabinet to assert themselves. One thing is certain, that the ineff ectual compromise sketched out by Mr. Disraeli at the beginning of the week cannot be accepted. There is ability enough in the Cabinet to frame a «ood measure, and the House of Commons de- sires nothing more sincerely than that this ability t-hould assert its claims to supremacy and undertake the task; if it will not there is but one alternative. The Post believes resignation is the only fate that await" the Derby Cabinet. Lord Derby and Mr. Dis- raeli will fall victims to the adamant iuo prejudices of a few colleagues and some 80 supporters. The Star says it is not only the Conservative Ministry but the Conservative par:y which is reeling to its iall. The Standard feels convinced that ministers have made a serious mistake in withdrawing their original scheme of R form, and entreats them to reconsider their course. If the present measure bo persisted in the liberals will gradually rally around Mr. Gladstone-he will gain ground every day—he will beat the ministry on point after point—he may make the Bill in fact more of his own than any which he could hopj to carry as chief of a Government, for the Consei vatives, who would then Q.B united in opposition, could not unite to defend this Bi 1; and if ministers should resign on borne particular point, how would they stand with the country, and how would they be able to rally their forces this or next year to oppose a Gladstone-Bright Ministry and its democratic Bill. The Standard advocates a conservative bill, embracing household suffrage, balanced by checks alott-d to secure rights of minorities. Too Daily News suggests that wore an honest understanding established betwoen the leaders of the two great powers, Lord Derby wight defy the bigots who dog his steps, and Mr. Gladstone disre- gard his Adullamites. If some arrangement be not practicable, then the government is doomed—no amount of forbearance can save it.
LOCAL NEWS. THE COTTNTY MAGISTRACY.—The recent addition to the commission of the peace has raised the total number of magistrates for this county to exactly one hundred and fifty. THE WELSH CupuM.—The Right Hon. the Earl Vane will preside next Monday at the annual conver- sazione of the Metropolitan Welsh Church. ACCIDENT.—Mr. John, the master of the workhouse, met with a serious accident on Wednesday from his foot slipping on a step, which caused a sudden fall, resulting in his leg being broken. Mr. John received prompt surgical attention, and we trust will go on favourably. THE LATE ME. BETHELL.-Mr. Bethell, brother of Lord Westbury, who died on the 25th ult., was a well- known contractor. He was also the lessee of a con- siderable mineral property in the parish of Llanharry, near Cowbridge. THE WOODEN CIRCUS.—The work of removing the wooden oircus in St. Mary-street, has been commenced, and the site will be cleared forthwith, it is to be hoped for the erection of some building of more attractive appearanoe. LIFE WITH AND WITHOUT METHOD.—On Thursday evening, the Rev. Paxton Hood lectured on the above subject, in the Congregational Chapel, Charles-street, Cardiff. The Rev. J. Waite presided. AUDITORS AND ASSESSOKS.— Ihe aunual election for these officers took place on Friday, at the Town-hall. Mr. T. G. South and Mr. J. Emerson Williams were chosen borough auditors, and Mr. Thomas Hodge and Mr. Luke Evans as borough assessors. The word as asessorswereetected as follows: In tbe oorth ward, Mr. Andrew Fulton and Mr. William N^oods; in the south waad, Mr. Thomas Cross and Mr. Joseph Henry Sladen. CIRCUMSTANCE.—At the Leys, one day this week, Mr. Richard John, who had purchased a wreck from Brixy Point, was in the act of breaking it up when he heard a noiBe in the hold of the vessel. Upon going down he was agreeably surprised to find a salmon, about 81b. weight, which waa the more surprising as during Mr. John's long residence at the Leys he never saw, or even heard of any one else ever seeing, a salmon on that isolated part of the coast. PRINCB ESTEKHAZY.—It may probably interest some of our readers to know that Mr. William Yachell, uncle of the late Messrs. Charles and William Vachell, of this town, and brother to old Mr. Charles Yachell, the grandfather of the present generation, was private tutor to the late Prince Esterhazy, of whose wonderful col- lection of jewels some interesting particulars were given in our last. Mr. William Yachell was a most accom- plished classical scholar, and a man of considerable literary attainments. He was a personal f'iond of Burke and Johnson, and his name appears with. those of Sir Joshua Reynolds, bheridan, Gibson, Burke, &c., in the Round Robin addressed to Dr. Johnson by The Club," criticising his Latin Epitaph on G ldsmith, as recorded in Bi swell." Mr. Vacholl was also a friend of Sir Joshua's, and attended his funcral.- Gitardiait. SALVAGE CASE.—At the police court, on Wednesday, a claim was made before R. O. Jones, Esq., by the cap. tain and the crew of the Lasa of Gowrie," for services rendered to the smack Love." The amount claimed was £00. Mr. Ingledew appeared for the salvors, and Mr. T. H. Stephens for the owners of the Love." Only one witne-s was examined, and it appeared from his evidence that the smack was lying in Milford Haven on the 11th of February, and from some cause she driftod from her anchor. There were some fears that she would run on the shore, and the crew of the tug. boat Lass of Gowrie" came up and offered their ser- vioes. Those serricea were at first refused, but after- wards accepted. The steamer towed the smack about twenty fathoms, and for these services thb crew deman- ded £ 51. Mr. Jones, thought that £ 10 would be amply sufficient, and made that award to the salvors.
LLANTRISANT COMMON LITIGATION. A public meeting of the bargtsses was held at the Town-hall on Monday evening, when a financial state- ment was laid before them, with regard to the lawnoit pending between the Marquis of Bute and themselves. Mr. Alderman Lewis, who presided, in the absence of the portreevp, culled upon each and every freeman of the ancient borough to strain every nerve in the cause. We understand, however, that the burgesses have since withdrawn the notice of trial which they had given for the Swansea assizes. What this will lead to remains to be seen, but it looks very like an abandonment of their claim. THE ASSIZES. The Spring Aasizes for tbid county will be opened at Swansea, on Tuesday next, before the Hon. &ir Henry Singer Keating, one of the Jnstices of the Conrt of Com- mon Pleas.

MR BRUCE ON POPULAR EDUCATION. I- the liotiso of Commons, on Tuesday, during the dobafca on Professor Fuwoett's motion for tho exten- sion of the Factory Acts to agricultural labourers' cliildran, Mr. Bruce, M.P. for Meitkyr, said :—Whether thy ban, member for Brighton presses his motion or not, 1 am su' e :t will b,. the opinion of this House that the discussion cannot have been without use, and I must eay that the principle, as I look upon it, is not so much the improvement of the ag-icultural popula- tion as the improvement. of the population generally. Yoa cannot consider the question of the county popula- tion without considering also the caeo of the neglected children who live in the suburbs of our large towns, children who live in the suburbs of our large towns, and it presses irresistibly on the minds of all who ex- amine this subject that enough has not yet been done in regard, to education, and that we have no adequate national system (hear, hear). Our attempts up to this time have been partial, and we have not covered the f¡t:fJ of the land with echools; and as Christian mea and legislators we ought, never to rest until we have done oar best to aocotcplish that object (hear, haar). Agricultural labourers are of very different classes. Labourera in the neighbourhood of populous cities are comparatively well off. In my part of the oountry, for insianoe, few labourers rooeivo lose than 3a. a-day, and in many parts of Yorkshire agricultural labourers are well otf. They may want, and I believe they do want, improved education, but all that you need do with respect to them is to see that fur:her means aie takesa for the education of their children. My hon. friend the member for Chippenham has stated that in the north of Wiltshire the condition of the agricul- tural labourers is very different from that described ) by tha hon. member for Bri.hton, but I think the hon. j gentlemen may have had in their minds two different classes of labourers. Drring the winter months it is u-ual to give steady employment to the married la- bourars, while a large portion of the unmarried labourers are thrown upon the poor rates. It is so elsewhere. I offered to find employment for 100 labourers in one part of the country, who I was told had to subsist upon 8s. a week wages. That showed some- thing radically wrong. It arose from the same cause which has created that miserable state of society in Spitalfields and other parts of the country—the im- proper distribution of manufacturing labour; and this arises from ignorance. (Hear.) A fact was brought to my knowledge at the Educational Department that where sohools were opened in the Western Islands, and where the inhabitants learned English, from that moment emigration begin, the population diminished, and the condition of those who remained began to improve. I believe that the emigration which has done 00 much for Ireland may be traced far more to the increased knowledge of the people in regard to the resourcee of other countries than even to the misery which has been experienood. The eama misery has been andired by a portion of the population at the east end of London, among whom a. atato of ignorance exists which it is difficult to believe. There are in our cities many indu-trial interests whicfi are well deserring the attention of the House, but I agree with the hon. member for Halifax that much of the success which has attended our factory legislation is owing to tho fact that we have preceded gradually and cautiously. At the same time, I think that the amount of experience we have gained justifies a much bolder application of the principle, (Shears.) No doubt we shall hear from the right hen. gentleman at the Home office that it will be hit) happiness and privilege to introduce a measure which will affect millions of our working population. It will probably have a wide soope, and embrace all but the agricultural population, and when that is done it will wl be impossible to keep out the agricultural population. (Hear, hear.) The hon. member for Brighton has made a eiiggestkm worthy of our consideration-namely, that it may be possible to insure the ohildren of the agricul- tural population aji education of a certain number of days throughout tha year. That will require lurther and special considerations, but the rest having been provided for, I have no doubt that that will be done wh-h win be most kind and considerate for the agricul- tural population, (Hear.)
PARLIAMENTASYINTELLIGENCE. THURSDAY. Tbe sitting of the House of Lords did not extend be. yond a quarter of an hour, and no businests of impor- tanoo came before tb 3ir lordships. In the Housd of Commons, Captain Gridley gave notice tbat on tb" proposal for the disfranchisement of Yarnsoutb and Lancaster, be would move they be only deprived of one msmbsr, and that any voter who bad been proved guilty oi bribery should net be allowed to vote at any fntvne el»iotif>n. Mr. Corry laid on the table a new minute on education, the object of which, without interfering with the revised code, was to promote the establishment of school* in poor localities, to permit ip- etruotioD in higher branches of education in certain schools and to provide a supply of effiaient pupil teathere. Mr. £ r<259 expressed a general approval of the minute, but Mr. Lowe thought that aa the revised code was working .0 well, it would ba better not to inter- fere with its operations. The subject dropped after a short debate. Tbe second reading of the Bill for the Confederation of the Canadian Provinces was moved by Mr. Adderlcy, who urged that the union in question would to tno") strength and power of the empire. A long debate ensued, in tbe course of which Mr. Bright con- tended that if the Comtederated Provinces were still to be protected by Enslish troops, to receive subsides for their fortresses, and guarantees for their railways it would be better for tbe colonists, and fairer to the Eng- lish taxpayer, to deciare them independent of this coun. try, and leave them to th sir own future. Mr. Bright stood IJODS ia bis opinion, and the bill was read a second time. The Chancellor ef the Exobeqner an- nounced that he tboughf he would be able to bring in the Inform Bill, of which he had given notice, next Thursday, but he was scarcely in a position tu make a positive promise ou the subject. FRIDAY. In tbe Lords, the Hypothec Amendment (Soetland) Bill was read a oecond tizae. The Liapendena Bill and the L'nd Auction Bill were read a third time and passed. The employmsnt of Volunteers in riots was discussed. The Earl Of Longford said an order waa about to bo issued from the Home OfSce giving infrac- tions to Volunteers as their duties. THE KEKOKJt MEASUBB. In tba Commons, Mr. White asked the Chancellor of the Ex/Jbequer whether in the preparation of the pro- mised Reform Bill tbe practice adopted in 1858 of avail- ing himself of the professional agents of the Conserva- tive party in lieu of the ordinary advisers of tbe Govern- ment would be followed, weing that such a mode of pro. cedure led to a co't of £:IOt;S 17s. 2d. The Chancellor of the Kxonequer said that there was no equity draaghtsnian in the Treasury capable of as. sii-ting the Government, but there ought to be one. Mr. Tring, the counsel to tbe Home Office, generally as. sisted the Government in drawing up bills, but be was so overwhelmed witfa work at present that his services were not available. The sum mentioned by the bon. membss* in reference to the bill of 16M included pay- ments to statisticians and men of science in preparing inforu-ation. If the hon. member thought £ 3,000 to extravagant sure he laboured under an erroneoos im- pression, as other Reform Bills bad cost a great deal more. Ho thought the eo-t of the present Reform Bill would amount to a sum whiah would quite satisfy the hon. member, In reply to e. qtiostiou from Mr. Gladstone, The Chancellor oI the Exchequer said he would be prepared on Monday to name the day on which h4 would introdoee the Reform Bill. In reply to Mr. Osborne, Sir J. Pakington stated that as 600B as Lieut. Brand landed in England be addressed a letter to the Admir- alty on tbe sntijectof the reproof he had received. His letter, which was written in proper terms, was acknow- ledged by the Admiralty, and if the boo. member would move for theui, there was no objection to produce them. Mr. H. Sheridan gave notice that in committee on the Reform Bill he should move a household suffrage clause. Lrrd Elcbo asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what were the intentions of the Govern- !n""t with reference to the law of Master and Servant. Mr. VValjiole said that at present it would be impos- sible to introduce a bill on the subject, since a much mora extended subjeot of a cognate character, occupied the attention of the Government. Sir W. S. Maxwell asked tbe Chancellor of the Exche- quer whether, in his proposed scheme of Reform, it was proposed to give any additional representation to Scot- land, and if so, from what source the increase was to be derived. The Chancellor of the Exchequer thought the ques- tion which bad been put to him was framed upon a mis. conception of the prgtise state of affairs. He had pro- miserl to introduce a bill to improve the reprtsentatson of the people of England and Wales in Parliament, but the Government had not arrived at the conclusion that there was too much representative power in England. I bo only ooneiusion they had arrived at was that it might be more efficiently distributed. He could not admit that in attempting to improve the representation of the people in England and Wales, they were bound at tbe same time to consider the claims of any other part of the United Kingdom. Her Majesty's Government when they ptoo-eied to consider the case of Scotland, wouid consider it without foregone conclusions, and sohly in reference to the claims which it might put for- ward to reprt>sen tation in the House of Commons. The Trades' Unions Bill was read a third time and passed. Mr. VValpole moved for leave to bring in a bill for the extension of the Factory Aots, and for regulating the l our* of labour for children, young persons and women, employed in workshops. He explained that the first portion of the bill would apply to six different heads of trades, and include all establishments in which 100 persons or upwards were employed, whilst the latter part related t) establishments of a less magnitude. Leave waa given to bring in the bill.
CAHDlh'F POL I CK-FRIDAY. (Before R. O. JONES, Esq.) Rir.rocs.—Charles Dillon was brought up by Sergeant ) Hornblow for being drunk and riotous in Bute-street. Pri- soner said he was not drunk, but was bound for Mr. Bland's yard, and whe-u he passed the police station the police shoved him in, and locked him up for the night. He thought they were joking with him at first, until they would not let him. out. Fined 5s. and costs. DisoaDEaLY PRO6TTTUTK6.—Elizabeth Day, a prostitute in Whitmore-lane, was brought up by P.C. Phillips, for accost- ing men at one o'clock this morning, in the street, and pull- ing them about against their will. Sent to prison for sevett days.

The case was dismissed, the Inspector not being able to prove that defendant had been on the stand any length of time; but the magistrate cautioned the defendant not to offend again. BEEHHOUSB OFFENCES.—Robert I.atto, of the Old Duke beerhouse, Herbert-stieet, was charged with selling beer at illegal hours. At one o'clock on Sunday morning, P.C. Phillips was called in by Mr. Barnett, pawnbroker, next door, who said he could not sleep for the noise that was being made in Litto's house. On going in with P.C, Lewis, Phil- lips found four women, nine sauer men, and one drunken man, in an up-stairs room. Defendant said he had let the room for the night to an Irish wedding party, and had drawn no beer for them after eleven o'clock. He called Edward Murphy, the married man, who said he had told the policeman that it was a private party of his friends, whom he had invited to celebrate the wedding. Superintendent Stockdale said it was a very disorderly bouse. Finad 40a. and costs. Uriah Smart, of the Rose and Crown, Bute-street, was summoned for permitting prostitutes to remain in the house. P.C. Phillips paid two visits on Saturday night, at an inter- val ot an hour, and found the same prostitutes in the house on both occasions. The defendant's wife called a witness to prove that the prostitutes had been out of the house during tiie interval. The case was dismissed. Timothy Murphy, of the Hope and Anchor, Bridge-street, was summoned by P.C. Coles for selling beer at illegal hours. The constable found a party of meA playing cards in the house twenty minutes after closing time. Defendant pleaded that liis clock was wrong. As the house had been fined »ev»ral tim s before, a penalty of C,3 and costs was in- flicted. John Tobin, of the East Dock tavern, Adam-st., was sum- moned by P.C. Oadd for selling beer at illegal hours. The policeman found three men drinking there at a quarter to ten o'clock on Snnday morning. Defendant's wife stated that one of the men produced a Rhymney railway ticket, which the constable admitted, but stated that the other two men were residents in the neighbourhood. The case was adjourned to Monday. THE CATTLE MARKET Tot-La.—PoMee.constaMe Coles was summoned by Mr. Wiltshire, of PwUcoch, Ely, the collector of Canton market tolls, for having sold a horse at the Cardiff pound, without having first fetched it to Canton market, had it inspected there, and paid toll on it. Mr. Superintendent Stockdale said, he appeared for the constable. Mr. Wiltshire said he would have had Mr. R. W. Williams to appear for the Oanton Market Company, but he was in London now, attend- ing Mr. Wynduam Lewis' widding. Mr. Stockdale: Take aa adjournment until he returns. Mr. Wiltshire: It is not neceseary. Mr. Jones: You complain of not receiving toll Mr. Wiltshire: I complain of the horse not being brought to Canton market to be inspected. Mr. Stockdale: You asked me for a shilling toll. Mr. Wiltshire I said if a shilling was paid me no proceedings should be taken. Mr. Stockdale: We lost a good deal by the horse as it was. Mr. Jones Horses do not seem to be mentioned in the Act you have re- ferred me to. Mr. Wiltshire A horse is an article, and the let refers to articles. The following evidence was then given :—Philip Williams: I am hayward or keeper of the Cardiff pound. The constable, Coles, brought a horse there on the gth, and impounded it. It remained there until the 16ih. I am not sure it was Coles who impounded it. On the 16th the constable, acting as auctioneer, sold the horse in the pound. There were few bidders, and it fetched Its.; my claim was 15s. 'id. for the keep of the horse. The constable paid me. If he had offered to take the horse to Canton market, I should not have let the horse go without being paid my fees. The horse was sold to a boatman for work on the canal. It had been the custom from time immemorial to sell horses at the pound in this manner. The magistrate took the Cauton Market Act and said he would look at its pro. visions and those of other Acts bearing on the matter,and give his decision next week. OBSTHUCTINO THE PAVEMENT.—Mr. F. Case, greengrocer, High-street, was summoned for leaving packages on the pave- meat in front of his shop. The case was dismissed, the evi- denee,not showing that the goods had been on the pavement longer than necessary for unloading them. APFRKNTICE CASE. Paul Smith, painter, was sum- moned by John Prothero for 12:1. wages. The complainant is an apprentice to defendant, and alleged that on a window being broken by another person, defendant imputed it to him and sent 1111., home and refused to let him work for a month, for which wages were now claimed. The defendant's foreminsaid the boy was very insolent to the customers, 3nd the defendant wanted to have the indentures cancelled. The magistrate told the foreman to tell the defendant to come in person on Monday and bring the indenture with him. Two or A TRADE.-Griffith Morton was summoned by Richard Goidsworthy for assaulting him on the 22nd ult. Complainant said defendant had taken him by the throat, choked him, and threatened to throw him into the East Dock. Defendant said it was true he had given complainant a shaking, because he lii-d annoyed him in business out of jealousy. Defendant was fined 5s. and costs. RoBBBR y.-Joh!] Thomas was charged with robbing a French sailor named Jean Lelli. Prosecutor had been paid off yesterday at the shipping office, and received £ 10 8s. 3d.
